I'm excited! The Clear Creek Writers, my local writers' group, is sponsoring an event this coming weekend. It's been a while since I've attended a conference, so it will be fun and encouraging to hear great speakers and hobnob with other writers. If you live in Kentucky or the surrounding area and are interested, here are the details.
What: Confessions of Working Writers II
Where: 934 Main Street, Shelbyville, KY 40065
When: Saturday, May 21, 2011, 9 am to 4 pm
Who: Speakers include authors Ann Gabhart, Annie Jones, Laura Resnick, Virginia Smith, and poet Sherry Chandler.
Why: For great writerly wisdom and fellowship of course!
How: To register or obtain more info, email Gail Chandler at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional details can be found on the Clear Creek Writers' blog. (Note that a few items have changed slightly since that posting.)
Other Details: Cost - non-member preregistration, $40, At the door, $45. Members, $20. Cost includes a box lunch.
Since I'm gearing up for this event, I was pleased to see one of Hope Clark's recent posts entitled Hidden Treasures You Find at Conferences. Talk about perfect timing! I am armed and ready to go.
Do you get excited about conferences? Care to share why or why not?
Taking a break for a bit, see you on or around the 26th. Have a great week!
